As the pay-extra-for-avocado generation, it's no surprise when studies show Millennials both expect and are willing to pay for premium ingredients in their food.  For example, 68% of Millennials will pay extra for organic food, and the majority place a higher value on foods that are responsibly sourced.  

How does this preference for premium play out when it comes to Millennials and their pets' food?  What kind of attributes do Millennials consider premium - and what are they willing to pay extra for - when choosing dry pet food for their beloved canine and feline friends?
